    This was an impulse buy, but then I had to wait 5 weeks for it.
    Doc Barranti whipped up this Barranti-Myers
    Barton Special for a Colt Commander to go with my vintage holster collection.
    I have 3 original Barton Specials, but all for revolvers. 20200919_075851.jpg 20200919_075839.jpg 20200919_075824.jpg

    9mm. No need for another 45 at the moment. I'll write it up this weekend.

    .41mag is one of my favorite revolver calibers.
    Very underrated cartridge.

    True impulse buy!

    Found this GI .45ACP on GB a few weeks ago and purchased it, as I have been looking for a long slide for a long time. (When I spoke to Alex about it, he told me to hang up and buy it now, which I did!)

    Went to pick it up and got to chatting with my buddy (local dealer). He mentioned he still had a revolver he ordered months ago and received last month. While it was on order, about six guys told him they were very interested. None of them came to buy it. He told me he'd take $1500 out-the-door (Texas sales tax is >8%). I simply said, "I'll take it". On IMPULSE, NO REGRETS!

    Went looking for a Wilson, with no luck.
    Found this Langdon Tactical Beretta 92G Elite brand new in box on sale for $649, could not say no. 20201002_165342.jpg

    I don’t blame you. That’s a very good deal.

    They kept complaining that it was mismarked and that was less than they paid for it.
    The place was crowded and I loudly asked if all of their guns were "mismarked".

    Saw this cased S&W 640-1 about a month ago, and decided that I “needed it:”
